The vehicles we drive are a major part of our lives. They are a major expense and we expect them to provide safe and reliable transportation.
Some vehicles, however, may contain manufacturing or design defects that can pose a danger to our families and others on the road. Even if these defects do not create a potential safety issue, they might result in costly repairs to consumers. The attorneys at Sauder Schelkopf hold automotive manufacturers accountable for these defects.
Some examples of common vehicle defects include:
- Engine malfunction
- Excessive oil consumption
- Transmission failure or slippage
- Infotainment and navigation defects
- Door latch, seatbelt and airbag malfunction
- Premature brake wear
- Premature suspension wear and failure
- Premature tire failure
